Apple will unveil its newest iPhones, likely called the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, today at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium starting at 10 a.m. PT.

Apple will stream the media event here. You can access the official stream via Safari — you’ll need an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch on iOS 7 or later, a Mac on OS X 10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. You can also watch the stream via Apple TV.

GeekWire will also be live-tweeting the event — follow along via our Twitter here.

As far as what will be announced, Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo released a research note over the weekend on what he expects from the new iPhone. His predictions include an iPhone 7 in five colors; improved cameras; new storage capacities; and perhaps most controversial, no headphone jack.

Apple is expected to also reveal a new Apple Watch and a release date for the company’s new operating systems.


Sony, meanwhile, is set to reveal two new PlayStation 4 consoles at noon PT today in New York City. The video game giant is expected to announce a slimmer PS4, as well as the so-called “PlayStation 4 Neo,” a more powerful version of the current PS4.

Sony’s announcement comes just after Microsoft unveiled a more compact and redesigned version of the Xbox One, called the Xbox One S, that hit store shelves on Aug. 2. It will also sell a more powerful version, called Project Scorpio, in time for the 2017 holiday season.

You can watch Sony’s event on Twitch or YouTube. We’ve embedded the stream below:
